(FR) IMAGEUR ET ÉCHANTILLONNEUR DE SPOT À ÉTAGE DE TRANSLATION
Abstract
(EN) Optical devices that combine imaging with spectral detection usually require bulky or expensive optics or are limited in the spectral measurements that can be made. The disclosed device uses a lens and mirror to provide two image planes: one for a pixelated detector and the other for an optical fiber assembly. The optical fiber assembly may be scanned over most or all of the field of view, or this may be achieved with a fixed fiber assembly and translatable mirror. Multiple fibers may be included in the assembly and multiple measurement or other devices may be connected to the remote ends of the optical fibers.
(FR) Des dispositifs optiques qui combinent une imagerie avec une détection spectrale nécessitent généralement une optique volumineuse ou coûteuse ou sont limités dans les mesures spectrales qui peuvent être réalisées. Le dispositif décrit utilise une lentille et un miroir pour fournir deux plans d'image : l'un pour un détecteur pixelisé et l'autre pour un ensemble fibre optique. L'ensemble fibre optique peut être balayé sur la majeure partie ou la totalité du champ de vision, ou cela peut être obtenu avec un ensemble fibre fixe et un miroir mobile. De multiples fibres peuvent être incluses dans l'ensemble et de multiples dispositifs de mesure ou d'autres dispositifs peuvent être connectés aux extrémités à distance des fibres optiques.
